Microsoft Hyper-V running Fedora 8

Ben Armstrong, program manager on the core virtualization team at Microsoft, writes that Fedora 8 can now be integrated into a Microsoft Server 2008 deployment in six steps or less:

Anyone who has installed Linux on Virtual PC / Virtual Server knows that while yes, Linux is supported on these platforms, and yes, it does run well after getting it setup – installation can be a downright pain. It is for this reason that I take great pride in the fact that installing Linux on the Hyper-V beta release is a breeze.

Armstrong then lists the steps needed to get Fedora 8 to “just work” in a virtualized environment via Hyper-V – – the virtualization technology embedded into Server 2008, due out later this year. At the end of his post, Armstrong writes, “there were no special options / kernel arguments / hardware configuration involved. All very straight forward.”
